Klay Thompson Goes Scorched Earth On “Christian” Giants Pitcher Who Refused To Kneel During Anthem (PICS)
Sam Coonrod was thrust into the spotlight last week during the first few games of the Major League Baseball season after photos showed him refusing to kneel during the National Anthem and said that he wouldn’t do it because of his Christian values.
Among the many people who blasted him for his comments is Klay Thompson.
The Golden State Warriors superstar caught wind of San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Sam Coonrod giving an excuse for why he didn’t kneel prior to the anthem and promptly blasted him on Instagram.
“But yes, [you’re] a Christian, and Jesus would do this the exact same thing as you? He would never kneel with his fellow brothers an sisters in the name of real change. Eradicating systemic oppression and being silnet/comlcit with government officials in murdering those they were sworn to protect and serve,” Thompson wrote. “Why don’t you insert yourself in communities that are affected by systemic racism. You play in a melting pot of a city being in San Francisco. There are people of all racial and sexual orientations in our beloved city who are model citizens and REAL PEOPLE.”
Klay Thompson has missed the entire 2019-2020 season as he continues to recover from ACL injury he suffered during the NBA Finals.
